Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful, But These Gifts Are So Delightful!


December 12, 2012


Give an Inspired Gift in honor of a loved one! Inspired Gifts are real life-saving products shipped straight from UNICEF’s warehouses to the children who need them most. Send a gift to children in need in the name of your loved ones and UNICEF will mail or email a beautiful card to your loved one letting them know how you have honored them.

Give by today, December 12 and your Inspired Gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250,000.

Shop the UNICEF Inspired Gifts catalog and remember, UNICEF holiday cards never go out of style. You can still order right here or purchase cards at various retailers.


The team at Shot@Life has you covered with rhinestone Shot@Life T-shirts for kids and adults, and T-shirts with fabulous slogans like “A shot at sibling rivalry,” Camel water bottles that we can’t live without and how about a brand new iPhone case? Or you can simply donate to buy a child the gift of life-saving vaccines. Just $20 will immunize one child for life against measles, pneumonia, diarrhea and polio. Now that’s a very special holiday present. Shop here.

  • $10 can help provide health care services to one mother and her baby, from pregnancy to post-delivery
  • $30 can help give emergency hygiene kits to a family of four

It’s really that simple. International Medical Corps works on the front lines of global health. What a wonderful way to give this holiday season.

Every Mother Counts

The Every Mother Counts gift guide has all style written all over it! Founder Christy Turlington and her team have worked with some wonderful companies to find fashion, jewelry, totes, books and music that make you feel fabulous and benefit their work in saving mothers’ lives.

There’s something for everyone — from the Dwell Studio stamp set and throw, Minted Wall Art limited edition custom art prints, an official Oiselle EMC marathon team hoodie, to a custom Ergobaby Tote designed in collaboration with Christy. You can also donate a Mama Kit to a mom in Uganda  supporting the Baylor Uganda project which provides transportation vouchers for pregnant women who need to get to a health clinic or hospital to safely deliver their babies. $22 funds a “mama kit” which includes basic essential supplies needed to help a woman deliver safely. You can find the full list here!


Catapult is an amazing new program from our partners at Women Deliver. Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Catapult connects people to projects that advance the lives of girls and women worldwide. It’s the first online funding site dedicated specifically to advancing gender equality, and already features 70 projects in more than 30 countries.

Catapult Gift Cards are one easy way to allow your friends and family to choose the project they want to support. A tax-deductible gift card can be put toward teaching girls to read using mobile phones, providing access and education about family planning in a remote area, or any other of the great solutions on Catapult.

Double Your Impact Catapult has teamed up with our incredible partners, Johnson & Johnson, to double your donation this giving season. For every dollar you give, Johnson & Johnson will match your gift to its partners on Catapult–up to $50,000–from December 6 through January 31.

Global Giving

Global Giving has gifts cards for you to spread holiday joy this year. The receiver gets to choose how they use their Global Giving donation made by you. Even better, you can double the impact of all recurring donations – during December, all recurring donations are being matched (while funds remain).

Global Giving also has gifts for you! Choose from this catalog of gifts you receive when you give!!! We love this fair trade soccer ball.

How’s that for an extra holiday treat?!

Part 1 of our Gifts That Make an Impact is right here. No matter what you give this season, we are grateful you’re part of a growing community that is literally changing the world for mothers and babies everywhere!

Wishing you the Happiest of Holiday Seasons.

With love,
The Million Moms Challenge Team
